SELECTMEN'S REPORT 

This was a busy year for the Selectmen. With most taxpayers 
straining under the effects of a full-scale recession, we felt the need 
to be conservative in planning this year's budget. The overall total 
for 1992's Town Budget, as proposed, is $300. 00 less than the 1991 
appropriation. Credit for this feat is owed to the many departments 
which were able to meet or beat our requested 5% cap on budget 
requests. One notable increase is in the Contingency Fund. We 
doubled that appropriation due to concerns about potential legal 
expenses as a result of a lawsuit filed against the Town regarding 
the Stonehouse Mountain Subdivision. 

In a voluntary pay cut, Louise Mack reduced her bill for ser- 
vices to the Town in 1991 by about 20%! Louise feels that the eco- 
nomic crisis is affecting so many of us that she wanted to do some- 
thing to help. Thank you Louise. 

We spent a fair amount of time in 1991 assessing the impact on 
the Town of a proposed 15-lot subdivision on Stonehouse Mountain 
Road. Review of engineering reports, traffic impact studies and an 
on-site survey of the road led to a proposed cost- sharing agreement 
between the Town and the developer. Under this agreement the de- 
veloper would bear the bulk of costs for improvements to the Orford- 
ville-Lyme Center Road should the development take place. 

We also allotted many hours to the process of recruiting a new 
Police Chief. Our search led us to select Chief Harold (Hal) Jarvis, 
who has a solid professional background and is a long-time Upper 
Valley resident. Chief Jarvis has energetically pursued the con- 
tinuation and expansion of the D. A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance 
Education) Program in the Orford Schools. 

1991 saw no major bridge reconstruction projects. We con- 
tinued to allot funds to Capital Reserve for future major work while 
undertaking some repair and maintenance of bridges this year. The 
reconditioning of White's Bridge on Archertown Road was begun 
and a full inspection was undertaken on Week's Bridge. Paving was 
completed on Indian Pond Road Bridge. 

Road work included blasting of ledge and paving on Indian Pond 
Road. Through a cooperative effort with Bruce Schwaegler, a sec- 
tion of the Piermont Heights Road was reconstructed. 

Town Truck #2, a one-ton Chevy purchased in 1987 is enter- 
ing its fifth year of service, and has become problem-prone. It is 
proposed that we purchase a new truck to replace it. In order to 
do this we must raise an amount of $8, 625. 00. This amount plus the 
vehicle's trade-in value and the balance in the Capital Reserve Fund 
will be sufficient to purchase a new vehicle. Careful review of the 
costs and benefits of this purchase have convinced us that it would 
be wise at this time. 

A recycling storage facility has been set up at the Town Garage. 
Please use it. You may bring in glass, aluminum, newspaper, card- 
board, tin cans, and plastic soda and milk jugs every Saturday be- 
tween 10:00 a.m. and noon. Floyd Marsh is largely the one to credit 
for establishing our recycling program.

SELECTMEN'S REPORT - page 2 

The New Hampshire banking collapse has affected progress on 
Orford's cable television system. Grassroots Cable Systems indi- 
cates that the capital needed to construct systems is severely limited. 
When funding is arranged, hopefully this year, Orford will be Grass- 
roots' top priority system. 

To initiate a program aimed at restoring the Mall to its former 
appearance, twelve trees were planted last Fall. They were selected 
and placed with the guidance of Elmer Brown. The Selectmen have 
applied for a grant to supplement town funds for future plantings. 

The Floodplain Development Ordinance is once again an issue to 
be considered at Town Meeting. Information was distributed by mail 
in January, and at two public meetings. The complete proposed 
ordinance is available at the Post Office and at the Town Office. Pass- 
ing the ordinance is essential if our neighbors who live in the flood- 
plain are to be able to secure flood insurance, a mortgage, or home 
equity loans. Failure to pass the ordinance will result in Orford's im- 
mediate suspension from the National Flood Insurance Program. The 
Planning Board and the Selectmen recommend that you support this 
measure. 

We are sorry to note the passing of a dedicated Town servant. 
Evelyn Bunten, our Treasurer, passed away last Fall after serving 
the Town most capably and with good humor for ten years. 

The Selectmen thank the many volunteers on whom the Town 
depends so heavily. Special mention goes to Marian Tomes who 
filled the Treasurer's position after Evelyn Bunten' s passing. Charles 
Peters was subsequently appointed Treasurer, and will run for 
election to the position this year. Joseph Arcolio was appointed to 
the auditor position in Mr. Peter's place, and will also seek election 
from the floor on Town Meeting Day. We thank all of these folks for 
their generosity in serving the Town. 

Toni Pease, our Civil Defense Director, is to be commended 
on her work to develop a thorough Emergency Management Plan for 
Orford. The plan is currently under review and will soon be adopted. 

We were pleased to hear early in 1991 that the Orford Fast 
Squad would be revived. The efforts of the volunteers who have 
worked to re-form the group are sincerely appreciated. We were so 
pleased that the Fire Department took delivery of the long-awaited 
new engine last spring. We thank all the members involved for 
their efforts to oversee its completion to specifications. 

Respectfully submitted,

A THANK YOU TO ROBIN TAYLOR 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Robin Taylor for 
all the work and support he gave to the Board of Selectmen and the 
Town during the past three years. 

Robin had the very difficult task of being the Selectmen's repre- 
sentative on the Planning Board which required many additional hours 
of his time. 

Robin was instrumental in establishing Orford' s Recycling pro- 
gram. He has laid a solid foundation for a program that will save the 
Town money for years to come. 

Robin's thoughtful approach to the many issues, problems and 
needs of the Town will be missed.

ORFORD FAST SQUAD 

The Orford FAST Squad reorganized under new Articles of 
Agreement filed with the Secretary of State in September. A request- 
for- support letter was mailed to all Orford Boxholders soon after. 

A number of generous responses were received and we thank 
all who contributed. The majority of donations were used to purchase 
and update supplies and equipment. 

Communication equipment was purchased with a portion of the 
Hazen Morey Trust Fund that was set up for the Orford FAST Squad 
by Charles H. Clifford. 

We started responding to medical emergencies in September. 
Our membership is small but we continue to grow. One of our goals 
is to try to respond to all calls. This can only be achieved with an 
increase in members because of our work schedules and other re- 
sponsibilities. 

If anyone is interested in joining the Squad or can support us in 
other ways, we meet the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. 
in the Social Library.

PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS 

1991 was another busy year with the mowing of the com- 
munity's playgrounds, common and boat landings. 

Improvements were made to the soft ball field, the boat 
landing dock and the docks at Indian Pond. Materials were 
purchased to improve the Little League field with special thanks 
going to Pat Tullar and the players' parents who donated their 
time to improve the quality and safety of the field. 

Special thanks to Marty Roberts who has moved to Hanover, 
N. H. She has done a great job with the swim and ski programs.

SWIM PROGRAM REPORT 

The 1991 Swim Program ran for the usual three weeks in July. 
We were fortunate to have an excellent teacher this year. 52 children 
participated with 18 being from Piermont. The Piermont children 
were charged $12. 00 to receive lessons. There is no charge for the 
children of Orford residents and taxpayers. In addition to the 52 
children in regular classes, we had a special class for 8 children 
from the Orford Child Center. 

The program ended with lunch and special games and awards. 

A special thank you to all the parents who assisted throughout 
the program and to all the people who helped with the set-up and 
dismantling of the docks and finally to Marty Roberts who helped 
select our teacher and started the program this year. 

CATHY BERGHUIS 



SKI PROGRAM REPORT 

The Ski Program continued to be an attractive activity for the 
K through High School children and all parents as evidenced by the 
increasing enrollment over the past several years. The 1990-91 
program had 62 children enrolled, 17 volunteer instructors and 
many volunteer baby sitters, lodge monitors and general helpers 
to manage the 8 Wednesday afternoon programs. The present 
1991-92 program has further increased to 75 children, 21 in- 
structors and the usual wonderful group of helpers each week. This 
translates to over 30% of all Orford students participate. In the K 
through 8th grade, almost half of all students are active program 
skiers. 

The purpose of the program is to offer school children the op- 
portunity to learn the fundamentals of alpine skiing. We offer be- 
ginner, intermediate and advanced instruction on 8 consecutive 
Wednesdays with transportation to and from the Dartmouth Skiway 
in Lyme. The program is funded primarily by the participants (65%), 
the Orford Recreation Department (25%) and a private raffle of 
donated prizes (10%). 

A special thank you this year to Cathy Berghuis and Margaret 
Wheeler for doing all the organizational work, Karen Tullar for 
managing the raffle and to all the faithful instructors and helpers, 
without which the program can not function. Skiing has been won- 
derful because of the snowmaking capability at the Skiway and all 
participants have shown remarkable skills improvement.

ORFORD VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT REPORT 

In 1991 the Orford Volunteer Fire Department responded to 26 
calls. The types of calls were as follows: 

Structural 1 Car Accidents 4 

Mutual Aid 5 Fire Alarms 5 

Chimney 8 Power Lines 2 

Car Fire 1 

On 24 May 1991 the Orford Volunteer Fire Department re- 
ceived the new Engine 1 from Emergency One Incorporated of Ocala 
Florida. Engine 1 was delivered by the Greenwood Fire Apparatus 
Incorporated of North Attleboro, Massachusetts. 

The Lukas' "Jaws of Life" tool was used three times last year 
to extract trapped motorists. Two of these incidences were in 
Bradford, Vermont, and one incident was in Orford. The Orford 
Volunteer Fire Department provides the Lukas Tool to surround- 
ing communities i. e. Bradford, Fairlee and Piermont as part of 
the Mutual Aid Agreement. The "Jaws of Life" was purchased by 
the Orford Volunteer Fire Department in December of 1990 with 
funds received from the original Orford F. A.S. T. Squad. 

We have seen a large increase in the number of calls in the 
last year, but the members of the Fire Department voted to hold 
our budget to last year's appropriation because of the state of the 
economy. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ARTHUR DENNIS 
Orford Fire Chief 

UPPER VALLEY HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COMMITTEE 

The Upper Valley Household Hazardous Waste Committee held 
its eighth annual collection of household hazardous waste materials 
on May 4, 1991. 

The 1990 annual collection collected 53 drums and about 100 
cars had to be turned away due to budget restraints. In 1991, due 
to an increased budget, no one had to be turned away and 60 drums 
were collected. Last May, over 383 households were served. This 
increase in community participation shows that citizens are aware 
of the importance of keeping toxic materials out of landfills and 
are willing to support such a program with their own efforts. 

The Committee receives the major portion of its financial sup- 
port from regional landfills in the Upper Valley. In addition, con- 
tributions from local businesses and organizations, grants from 
the states of New Hampshire and Vermont, and on-site donations 
have made it possible for us to conduct eight annual Collection Days. 
However, each year costs increase for the disposal of the hazard- 
ous materials at out-of-state licensed facilities. This year, the 
Committee is looking for additional funds so that all residents who 
come to the site can be served. 

The next Collection Day will be held on Saturday, May 2, 1992. 
Area residents are welcome. - 62 - COLIN HIGH, Chair 



OR FORDVILLE SCHOOL BUILDING COMMITTEE 

At the 1990 Annual Meeting, the Town of Orford voted to accept 
title to the Orfordville School building from the Orford School Dis- 
trict. The sum of $5, 750. 00 was raised and appropriated to cover 
the transfer of title and associated legal fees, insurance, test 
pits and septic design. At the end of 1991 there was $1, 747. 35 re- 
maining in this account. The transfer of title still has not been com- 
pleted due to title difficulties. In the interim a lease was executed 
with the School District so that insurance and expenses would be 
picked up by the Town. It is expected that the title will be cleared 
this year. 

The present Orfordville Building Committee members are: 
David Bischoff, Alice Boone, Robert "Tim" Dyke, Bruce Schwaeg- 
ler and Robb Thomson. 

The Committee met in January 1992 to re -affirm its position 
as outlined in the 1990 Annual Report and recommended that an- 
other $6, 000. 00 be placed into the Capital Reserve Fund estab- 
lished at the 1991 Town Meeting. 

If the recommendations outlined in last year's report are 
followed, the Orfordville School would be converted to Town 
Offices in 1993. No further recommendations were made regard- 
ing the Town Hall, Orfordville Free Library or the present Town 
Office. 

THE ORFORD FREE LIBRARY 

Orford Free participated again with the Orford Social Summer 
Reading Program. This year, Ruth L. Brown, Martha Roberts, 
and Sarah Schwaegler used their talents to capture the children's 
interests through stories and activities - of life in the city, ex- 
periments one can peform with food stuffs in the kitchen, and of 
the dependency of insects and plants upon each other as well as 
the methods of seed dispersal. 

Both second and fourth grades continued to visit the library 
twice monthly until summer vacation. We had students from two 
family schools visit us and students from a private school found 
resources for their research projects. 

Our IBM computer has become a very useful tool for locating 
books in our interlibrary loan program. Requested books arrive 
by mail on an average of two to three days after request has been 
received. 

A special THANK- YOU to four members, David Braley, Russell 
Collins, Paul Dalton, and Virgil Mack, of the Orford Lion's Club 
who painted the ell and the trim on our library making a fine im- 
provement in its appearance. 

This past summer, Jenny Mack served as an apprentice lib- 
rarian at our library from May through August. 

We appreciate the assistance and support provided not only 
by the Town, but also by the Friends of the Orford Libraries, 
by Carol Boynton, Doloris Dyke, and Barbara Hall. Our thanks to

ORFORD FREE LIBRARY - page 2 

members of the community who have given us books, magazines 
and reference material. 

The North Country Office of the State Library located in Twin 
Mountain has been an ever present resource for our library through 
book loans, staff guidance in bringing the library up to State stan- 
dards, through education of library procedures such as building and 
weeding of book collections and useful library usage of computer. 
It is with alarm that we see staff reduced from this office because of 
state government cut-backs

THE ORFORD SOCIAL LIBRARY 

The Orford Social Library experienced a banner year. We are 
most happy that our library continues to fill a definite place in our 
little town. Our Function Room is used by various groups as follows: 

The Elementary School has again staged a very interesting and 
well-attended Art Show with work done by many students. 

The Quackenbush Studio sponsored a group of young people 
teaching them skills in photography. Their project was interviewing 
and photographing Orford Citizens. The results of their work ter- 
minated with a very interesting and creative exhibit. 

The Friends of Orford Libraries continued their evening events 
hosting speakers Mrs. Alice Hodgson, Dr. Lawrence Kilham, 
Calley Avery and Mrs. Happy Griffiths. 

The Orford organizations that used our Function Room are 
C. P. A. Course, the Water Board and the Fast Squad. 

The Orford School organized a Historic Tour of the Village and 
the library was used as a meeting place and for refreshments given 
by the Lions Club. 

These meetings plus our regular Library brought 2, 584 visitors 
to the Library. 

We purchased twenty-one adult books and one hundred and six 
children's books. There were twenty- seven adult and ten children's 
books donated and eighteen videos purchased through donations for 
the purpose. 

The summer reading program was successful with twelve awards 
presented. 

Story hours for children have continued throughout the year. Also 
a special Puppet Show was presented by Lisa Taylor. 

The Trustees wish to thank our Librarian, Sheila Thomson, for her 
most efficient work and for the many, many hours of volunteer time 
she spends at the building making sure our Library is operating 
smoothly. We also thank the young girls who serve us on Saturdays. 

There are many volunteers without whom our Library could not 
function. To them go our very grateful thanks. The "Friends" who 
preside over our Thursday evening hours, and Kathy Berghuis and 
Sheri Tullar who help with the School Children have our thanks. 

Last but not least, we thank our Fairlee friend, Judy Pier son, 
who works on our Adult Collection labelling and cataloguing. 

Thanks also are given to Arthur Dennis, Paul Messerand 
Ralph Parker who in many ways keep our Library functioning and 
our grounds well-kept.

ORFORD PLANNING BOARD REPORT 

In 1991, the Planning Board became an elected rather than an ap- 
pointed body, as voted by the 1990 Town Meeting. The newly elected 
board included two new members (James Nickels and Thomas Trunzo), 
two members who had previously been alternates (Martin May and 
Harry Taylor), and three members who were on the previous board 
(Emily Bryant, Craig Putnam, and Selectman Robin Taylor). Alter- 
nates Elizabeth Bischoff and Paul Dalton were appointed. One addi- 
tional position of alternate remains to be filled. 

During the year, three lot line adjustments were made (for a net 
loss of 1 building lot, since in one case three lots were combined 
into two), three minor subdivisions were approved (adding three build- 
ing lots), and one major subdivision was approved (adding four lots 
with five building sites). Two cases of mobile homes being added to an 
existing lot were considered. 

The proposed subdivision of a 376 acre parcel on Stonehouse 
Mountain Road into 15 lots, mentioned in the 1990 Town Report, was 
denied by the Planning Board in 1991. The denial is currently being 
appealed in Grafton County Superior Court. This application drew 
much attention in Orford and in Lyme, and was the subject of many 
hours of consideration by the board, the subdivider, abutters of the 
parcel, and members of the public. This being a larger subdivision 
than the board has addressed previously, there were some new issues 
raised, such as the use of sprinklers for fire protection and the con- 
tribution by the subdivider towards road improvement costs. The 
change of board in the middle of the application process prolonged 
the procedure. 

Also during 1991, road construction specifications in the Orford 
Subdivision Regulations were amended and now include a new cate- 
gory of road, Privately Maintained Country Lane, which can serve 
1-6 dwellings. The reduced requirements for the country lane may 
make it feasible for new construction to occur further back from main 
thoroughfares, reducing the number of driveway cuts and maintaining 
the rural look of roadsides. 

A Capital Improvements Plan was adopted, as were additional sec- 
tions of the Orford Master Plan. 

New State legislation required that commercial gravel pit operators 
file closure plans by August 4, 1991.

ORFORD POLICE REPORT 

First I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude 
to everyone that has assisted the Orford Police Department this past 
year. Orford is truly a superb community in which to work and you 
should be very proud of your willingness to get involved. A special 
thank you is extended to Chief Arthur Dennis and the members of the 
Orford Fire Department as well as David and Brenda Thomson. 

The Orford Police Department experienced many changes this year 
which are to be expected with a new Chief of Police; some of these 
changes were: 

1. The town's police cruiser was replaced. In putting the new 
cruiser to work, you noted that it has been "marked" with a light 
bar on its roof and door markings. This was done for two speci- 
fic purposes, #1: it is proven fact that a high police visibility is 
deterrent to crime and #2: based upon the problems of the Upper 
Valley area over the past ten years or so, I wanted to make sure 
that if you were stopped at night for any reason, you knew who was 
stopping you. 

2. The Federal/State UCR (Uniform Crime Report) system was 
adopted and implemented which allows for better tracking of in- 
ternal reports and gives us direct contact with the federal and 
state governments in regards to obtaining statistical data on 
crime within our community, the state and this geographic area. 

3. Ties were reestablished with the New Hampshire Highway Safety 
Agency. In doing this, an avenue of potential grant monies was 
made available to us and numerous safety materials (pamphlets, 
etc. ) were obtained at no cost and placed within the town libraries, 
selectmen's office, town clerk's office and the school. 

It should also be noted that a general safety program 
geared towards youngsters in grades K through 3rd was brought 
into the school and was well received as it was presented by a 
robot named "Capt. Smyle". Once again, this was done at no cost 
as it was presented by members of the New Hampshire Highway 
Safety Agency. 

4. Not having a police shoulder patch that Orford could call its own, 
I approached the school with an idea to begin a patch contest with 
a history program about Orford. This program had never been 
done before in this area and with its presentation, it was found to 
be well received by the students. It was shown that learning can 
be fun and exciting with the roots of Orford being passed onto 
another generation. 

5. RSA 159:6, License to Carry, allows for the fees collected from 
the issuance of Pistol Permits to be utilized by the law enforce- 
ment department of the town in which the pistol permit was is- 
sued. As I process these applications while working for the town, 
I turn these monies back to the town. 

6. Other materials obtained this past year that will improve the 
service I can provide to the community include a portable radio, 
a broom, a shovel and a first-aid kit. These materials are car- 
ried within the cruiser for response to varied calls.

ORFORD POLICE REPORT - page 2 

As I have always been committed to the youth of the communities 
that I have served in, I have brought this tradition to Orford. Pro- 
grams presented included a "Bicycle Safety Program, and plans have 
been made to begin the D. A.R.E. program within the elementary 
school. 

Statistical information for the year follows. You will note an in- 
crease, in excess of 100%, over calls for service; some of this can 
undoubtedly be the direct result of difference in record-keeping. How- 
ever, a notable increase in calls is also reflected:

A total of -196- traffic stops were effected during this past year

In closing, I would like to state that a police department /police 
officer, is only as good as the community they serve. If you see some- 
thing strange or something that just doesn't seem right, please report it 
to the police. I can be reached through the office number of 353-4252; 
however, if you have an emergency and need my response right away,

ROAD AGENT'S REPORT FOR 1991 

This year we tried to concentrate on ditching and removing rocks 
and ledges from the roads to make grading a little quicker and easier. 
In keeping with our bridge replacement program, we redecked the 
bridge that goes to McGovern's off the Piermont Heights Road. We 
have also started preliminary work on the bridge by Week's to deter- 
mine the best way to handle this replacement or repair and have 
started paint work on the White's bridge over Jacobs Brook. I have 
tentatively scheduled the replacement of the first bridge on Grimes 
Hill Road. 

I would like to briefly explain how we function during the different 
types of winter storms. Our first priority is the bus routes and schooL 
yard and then the heavier traveled roads and then the roads where 
there are steep hills and so forth. It takes an average of 12 hours to 
plow and sand every road during a snowstorm and longer in an ice 
storm. We have one truck that holds 2 yards of sand and another 
truck that holds 5 yards and approximately 30 or so miles to cover. 
That means a lot of return trips to refill the sanders. Now this 
might not sound too difficult to do and get the bus routes done and 
everyone off to work or wherever they need to go, but most of our 
roads are dead end. That means we have to cover approximately a 
hundred miles a storm just to plow and sand and that doesn't count 
the trips back and forth for sand. I know it must seem like forever 
when you are waiting for us to get to your road during an ice storm, 
but believe me when you are driving a truck on a sheet of ice and 
backing down our roads in the dark, it is a trick just to stay on the 
road. 

Over the past 30 or so years of driving emergency vehicles, I 
have learned that it is better to get there safely and complete your 
task than not to get there at all and risk wrecking a valuable piece of 
equipment. We are doing our best to get the job done in a safe and 
economical manner. 

Respectfully submitted, 

PETER ANGWIN 
Road Agent

HOME AND COMMUNITY HEALTH CARE REPORT 

Home and Community Health Care of the Upper Valley, Inc. (HCHC) 
requests an allocation from the Town of Orford of $4, 130. 00 for 1992. 

HCHC is the not-for-profit, Medicare certified home care agency 
providing home health services to Orford residents. Our home care 
services include skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational ther- 
apy, speech therapy, medical social work, home health aides, home- 
maker, Child Health Program clinics, WIC Nutrition Program food 
vouchers and education, and Parent Aide support for families. We 
also provide health promotion services in the form of Town Clinics. 
We use the Town of Orford funds to support services for which HCHC 
is not reimbursed and the granting of our full request insures the 
needed services are available to all Orford residents. 

All of HCHC requests to New Hampshire towns are based on 
$4.45 per capita using the Federal 1990 census figures. The rate is 
an increase of only $0. 09 per capita from the amount approved last 
year. 

Once we have finished compiling our year end data, I will send 
you a Town Report summarizing services provided to Orford resi- 
dents during FY 1991. 

If you should have any questions or require further information, 
please do not hesitate to contact me.

Executive Director 

UPPER VALLEY - LAKE SUNAPEE COUNCIL 

Who We Are . There are nine Regional Planning Commissions 
in New Hampshire and 12 in Vermont. Like the others, the Upper 
Valley Lake Sunapee Council is a private, non-profit corporation 
enabled by state legislation. Our organization consists of the follow- 
ing people: 

Board of Directors : Each member town is entitled to at least 
two members on the Board of Directors. This Board is the Upper 
Valley Lake Sunapee Council, and approves the annual work prog - 
ram and budget. 

Executive Committee: Most of the authority for overseeing 
day to day operations of UVLSC has been delegated to this Com- 
mittee, made up of members of the Board of Directors. The Execu- 
tive Committee meets monthly. 

Staff: There are seven full-time and three part-time staff mem- 
bers. The full-time staff includes four planners, two community de- 
velopment specialists, and a secretary/receptionist. The part- 
time staff includes a bookkeeper, map/graphics person, and another 
planner. 

Where The Money Goes. Most of the money comes from five 
major sources: dues, federal community development funds ("CDBG"), 
the states of New Hampshire and Vermont, local technical assist- 
ance via contracts with member communities and transportation 
planning. Overall, your dues support just over one -fifth of our 
operation. For each dollar of dues, we obtain nearly four dollars 
of additional funding which we use for services to the region. 

- 74 - 



UPPER VALLEY LAKE SUNAPEE COUNCIL - page 2 

Where the money goes is simple: people. We invest most of the 
money in our staff, buying brains, education, and experience. The 
rest pays for an office, telephones, small computers, and mapping 
equipment - the basics necessary for the people to do the job. 

What We Do. Overall our duties fall into two catagories: 

* Provide services to member Towns 

* Address regional issues. 
Services to Towns 

* Questions : We spend a lot of time on the telephone, at 
meetings, and in our office answering questions about planning is- 
sues, based on our cumulative experience and expertise. 

* Answers: We provide detailed answers to detailed questions. 
Examples include: reviewing an ordinance, providing a linkage to a 
state or federal program, reviewing a proposed development project, 
explaining how a certain aspect of planning usually works, investi- 
gating what is appropriate in a given situation, exploring alternative 
solutions for a particular problem. 

* Information : In addition to staff expertise we maintain a 
library of pertinent planning information. We are a US Census data 
affiliate. 

* In- Depth Support: We do transportation planning, master 
plans, ordinances, natural resource planning, capital improvement 
programs, impact fee studies, opinion surveys, impact studies for 
large projects, and other special studies of many sorts. A number 
of towns also take advantage of our circuit rider planning program. 
Usually, we must charge in addition to dues for support in depth, to 
meet our expenses and break even. This type of support is available 
only to member communities. We do not do any work for private 
companies or individuals. These services are available at far less 
cost than comparable expertise from a private consulting firm. 

Regional Issues. 

* We also provide a forum for regional issues. Currently we 
are working regionally on transportation planning, community devel - 
opment, economic development, solid waste, hazardous waste, and 
studies related to Lake Sunapee and the Connecticut River. We are 
almost always able to support these efforts with state funds and/or 
special grants. Some of the state funding does vary depending on how 
much local support we have via dues. 

Additional Areas of Special Expertise. 

* Transportation Planning - Regional transportation planning 
is at the top of the list of regional concerns and priorities. We are 
working with member towns, the New Hampshire Department of 
Transportation, and the Vermont Agency of Transportation to assure 
that local and regional concerns are heard and addressed. 

* Community Development - UVLSC adminsters Community- 
Development Block Grant programs for member communities in 
New Hampshire. We also prepare grant applications to obtain fund- 
ing under this program. 

* GIS - Geographic Information Systems - We work with a 
number of member towns to provide maps and analyses for Master 

- 75 - 



UPPER VALLEY LAKE SUNAPEE COUNCIL - page 3 

Plans, utilities, and special land evaluation studies. 

* Environmental Planning - Includes solid waste and water quality 
planning. 

* Land Preservation - Support and cooperation with area land 
preservation efforts. 

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Council looks forward to serv- 
ing your community during the coming year. Please feel free to con- 
tact us for more information about specific activities in your com- 
munity, or whenever we can be of assistance. 



UPPER VALLEY AMBULANCE 

The Upper Valley Ambulance, Inc. has continued to meet the 
complex challenge of providing emergency transport ambulance ser- 
vice to the eight town region. This year we have done 458 emergency 
transports from the area. In an effort to keep costs down for the 
townspeople, we have continued to diversify. We have done 91 non- 
emergency transports. Also, UVA has developed a contract with 
Dartmouth- Hitchcock Medical Center to transport radiation therapy 
patients from the Lebanon facility to Hanover for treatment and back. 
These activities allow us to maintain the same per resident fee of $14 
to the townspeople. Of course, even thougn we are doing these non- 
emergency services, there is no compromise of tne ambulance service 
to serve its primary mission oi providing emergency services. We con- 
tinue to use a mix of full-time and part-time paid ambulance personnel 
to staff it, The day to day operations of the ambulance service are be- 
ing expertly run by Paramedic John Vose and Kevin Cole who reports 
directly to the committee of Town Directors who are appointed by the 
selectmen of the towns. There are several factors which continue to 
be difficult to predict even though we have been in operation for over 
17 months. These factors include exact operating costs, such as dis- 
patching as well as the volume of emergency calls, amount and type of 
revenue to be generated, cost of renting a facility to house the emer- 
gency transport ambulance service. Reimbursement has been an issue 
and UVA expects to write off about $20, 000 in bad debts and uncollect- 
ible bills. 

There are several advantages to the regional emergency transport 
ambulance service. It has been more responsive to the needs of the 
townspeople in the eight town area. The emergency transport ambu- 
lance service facility has served as a focal point for training for the 
local F.A. S.T. squads in the region. We've started a cadet program 
for high school students, and are currently sponsoring an EMT course 
in Fair lee. 



- 76 - 



You, as a resident of one of the eight towns, have the opportunity 
to support this vital service to the region. There are several ways you 
can take advantage of the opportunity to provide support. 

First, and perhaps the most important, you can continue to sup- 
port the regional emergency transport ambulance service with your 
vote at Town Meeting. Your vote is needed to approve operating costs 
for the Upper Valley Ambulance Service. Second, you can support 
the UVA with your tax deductible donation. Third, you can support 
the UVA Service with volunteering time. Contact your Town Di- 
rector or Board of Selectmen if you need further information.

TRI- COUNTY COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAM 
Request for Funding, Town of Orford 
Overview of Tri- County Community Action Program and Listen 

Tri- County Community Action Program (CAP) provides compre- 
hensive and effective outreach services to Orford residents. The ser- 
vices are provided locally through Lebanon In Service To Each Neigh- 
bor (LISTEN, Inc. ). Both agencies are private nonprofit organizations 
incorporated in New Hampshire nearly 20 years ago. Tri-County 
CAP serves Grafton, Carroll and Coos counties while LISTEN' s ser- 
vice area focuses on southern Grafton County in New Hampshire and 
northern Windsor County in Vermont. 

CAP contracts with LISTEN each year to provide services to low 
and moderate income residents. The funding raised in the seven muni- 
cipalities in the CAP/LISTEN service area forms the basis of LISTEN' s 
contract fee for outreach services. The contract is revised each year to 
include the total of municipal funds raised in the calendar year. CAP 
does not deduct any administrative fee so the total appropriations from 
the seven area towns are paid to LISTEN. 

LISTEN's relationship with CAP provides area residents with ac- 
cess to goods and services which would not otherwise be available 
through LISTEN. Area towns gain access to matching federal and 
state funds through CAP for emergency services (rent payments for 
homeless people, utility grants) which may otherwise be the financial 
responsibility of area towns and cities. 

The program and financial information presented in this proposal 
is based on LISTEN for two reasons. First, LISTEN is the agency that 
actually expends the town funds after being routed through CAP. Second- 
ly, each local CAP outreach service site then prepares the funding re- 
quests for municipalities within their service area since the local ser- 
vice site is most familiar with community policies and practices. 

The Need for CAP outreach services. The CAP outreach object- 
ives compliment LISTEN's mission: To ensure that Upper Valley 
residents have the resources to become economically independent. 
The economic health of the Upper Valley is reflected in the type and 
number of CAP outreach services provided at LISTEN. CAP requests 
funding support from area towns for two of the five programs of- 
fered at LISTEN: economic crisis assistance and self-help. LISTEN 
also acts as the local intake site for CAP's Fuel Assistance Program. 
However, Fuel Assistance is funded through CAP independent of 
municipal funds and this program area is not included in this re- 
quest for funding. 

The past two years have witnessed a dramatic increase in the 
demand for CAP outreach services. During 1991, LISTEN responded 
to increasing need for assistance including: emergency food pantry 
meals, utility assistance, budget counseling services, and commun- 
ity dinners. Form #6 of this proposal shows the results of twelve 
service objectives developed to meet the increasing demand for 
economic assistance. 

The need for CAP outreach services in Orford can be directly 
related to the expansion of town welfare services. The number of 
residents requesting assistance from area towns has risen and bud- 

- 78 - 



TRI- COUNTY COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAM - page 2 
get for the department has grown. Orford residents are regularly- 
referred to LISTEN by the welfare department staff to both supple- 
ment town assistance and to provide on- going support such as bud- 
get counseling. 

Coordination of Services . There are ten outreach service sites 
covered by the Tri- County Community Action Program. As one of 
the ten CAP sites, LISTEN cooperates and coordinates services to 
insure that, 1) clients do not receive benefits and services at mul- 
tiple service centers, 2) clients continue to receive needed services 
should they move from one city or town to another. Since LISTEN 
serves both Vermont and New Hampshire residents, the agency is in 
a unique position to coordinate individual client services not only be- 
tween municipalities but also between state agencies. 

CAP outreach sites work in partnership with municipalities to 
meet residents' basic economic needs. Several CAP client grant 
programs use local matching funds. For example, emergency grants 
for rental housing may allow for one month's rental expense. LISTEN 
may work with the city to assist a homeless person so that the cost 
of obtaining housing will be divided equally between the city and 
LISTEN grants. During the past 12 months, LISTEN provided a total 
of $14, 496 in direct housing and utility grants to residents in the 
seven town CAP/LISTEN service area. While the town may provide 
vouchers to purchase perishable food items, clients are referred 
to LISTEN's food pantry for non-perishable goods. The value of 
food pantry goods provided to residents in the seven towns during 
the past twelve months is approximately $15, 000. These examples 
include just three of LISTEN's twelve service objectives which may 
be funded through this request. 

LISTEN will make referrals to other agencies for needed client 
services rather than duplicating the existing services available. Head- 
rest and the Haven both have shelter space and may be called upon to 
provide temporary shelter while efforts are underway to secure long- 
term housing. Likewise, both the Haven and Headrest may refer cli- 
ents for self-help programs offered at LISTEN to develop the indivi- 
dual's ability to become independent. During times when LISTEN is 
closed, clients are referred to Headrest for immediate assistance. 
Food and clothing from LISTEN is made available to Headrest as 
needed to provide back-up support on nights and weekends. There are 
many other examples of situations when LISTEN will work with other 
private and public agencies to ensure that services are coordinated 
to both prevent duplication and provide continuity of services to the 
individual.

GRAFTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS REPORT 

In a continuing effort to communicate more directly with Grafton 
County citizens, we take great pleasure in submitting the following 
report for your information. 

During the past year, the County Nursing Home has continued 
to provide excellent care for approximately 120 elderly and infirm 
residents while complying with the increased demands of new fed- 
eral regulations. In November we opened a unit designed to meet 
the needs of patients with Alzheimer's disease and similar afflic- 
tions, which has been very well received by residents, families 
and staff. 

Inmates in the House of Corrections have been benefited from 
the Thresholds /Decision-making program, taught by volunteers who 
help their clients prepare for more productive lives in jail and on 
the outside. A grant from the Attorney General's Office has also 
provided us with a substance abuse counselor for the jail. 

New projects were also initiated at the County Farm. The pig- 
gery was reinstituted (20 piglets were born to 3 sows in October), 
and a lilac nursery was added through the State Lilac Commission 
(lilacs will be ready for distribution to public agencies in the spring). 
The farm also planted extra potatoes for contribution to local food 
pantries throughout the county, a project we plan to continue in fu- 
ture years. 

Since September the Commissioners have worked with the 
Sheriff, Assistant Sheriff and members of the County Legislative 
Delegation to review the County Dispatch Center and revise the 
fees charged for telephone answering and radio dispatching ser- 
vices. Discounts were eliminated for 1992 and fees based on actual 
use are planned beginning in 1993. Copies of the Study Committee's 
report are available at the Commissioners' Office. 

For the second year in a row we were able to reduce county 
taxes while maintaining necessary county services, The Commis- 
sioners intend to continue to hold the line on expenses, but do expect 
a modest tax increase next year due to the elimination of surpluses 
generated unanticipated increases in nursing home revenues. 

This past year the County distributed over $78, 000 in state in- 
centive Funds to local agencies to prevent out-of-home placements 
of troubled children and youth. The County also provides a Youth 
and Family Mediation Program available free of charge in the Leba- 
non, Littleton and Plymouth areas. 

The Board of Commissioners has made great strides in expand- 
ing efforts to inform our constituents about county government. 
Tours of county facilities, a mock trial for school children, and 
an open house took place during the County. Government Week in 
April, and plans are underway for an even broader program for the 
coming year (April 5-11). We held a special information session for 
local officials in September, have spoken to school and civic groups, 
and developed a slide presentation to show people what the county 
does.

GRAFTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS REPORT - page 2 

In closing, we wish to express our sincere appreciation to 
local officials and agencies and the citizens for continued in- 
terest and cooperation in our efforts to serve you. The public 
is invited to attend our regular meetings at 9:15 a.m. on Thurs- 
days at the County Administration Building in North Haverhill.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE DISTRICT PRINCIPAL 

Faculty: 

Two teachers joined the Orford School District Faculty this year. 

Sharen Conner received a B. A. from Bennington College and 
Masters in Education from the College of Saint Joseph. She has 
taught at the Greenwood School, Putney, Vermont, South Royalton 
and Woodstock High Schools. Sharen serves as the special education 
teacher for students in grades seven through twelve. 

Gary Barton, the fourth grade teacher, has taught at the Ver- 
shire and Newbury Elementary Schools and the Bank Street School 
for Children in New York. Gary received his B. A. from Framingham 
College and is currently enrolled in a masters program with Antioch. 
Educational Program : 

Elementary-preschool-grade 5 

A pre-school outreach program started this past summer. 
Deborah O'Brien visited the homes of Orford children three through 
five years of age to meet with parents and to discuss early child- 
hood development skills and to explain the school's role in the edu- 
cation of pre-school children. 

The faculty considered the results of an evaluation of the lan- 
guage arts program K-5 completed last year. A series of in-service 
activities related to the report were held. The topics discussed were 
Journal Use in the Classroom, Interactive Teacher Modeling in Lan- 
guage Arts, Interactive reading/writing, How to apply Interactive 
Reading- Writing in all curriculum areas, Strategies for Observing 
Children and Self Monitoring. 

In addition, two Orford teachers served on an S. A. U. #22 
committee which reviewed spelling instruction in all the schools, 
looked at best practices and wrote a Scope and Sequence for Spell- 
ing. The review was conducted by Dr. Louisa Cook-Moats. The 
math curriculum K-8 was also reviewed and a skills check list de- 
veloped for each grade level. 
Middle School : 

A computer literacy, library research, and keyboarding 
course was added at the middle school level. Required for all 
seventh and eighth graders, this course is taught by Mrs. Ball, 
the librarian, Mrs. Hanley, Business education teacher, and 
Mr. Lowry, Computer teacher. 

The sixth graders are involved in a new course, Minorities 
in America. In addition to reading from their text, they have had 
a series of speakers including Dartmouth Music Professor, Hafiz 
Shabbazz, Andy Steward, an attorney and former Chairman of 
New Hampshire's Advisory Committee to the U. S. Civil Rights 
Commission, Rev. Paul Chapman, a member of Dr. Martin 
Luther King's Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and 
Dr. Vincent Collins, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at the 
Dartmouth- Hitchcock Media Center. 

The course culminates with a three-day stay at the Brooklyn, 
New York Poly- Prep Middle School.

DISTRICT PRINCIPAL'S REPORT - page 2 

High School: 

Probability and Statistics was added to the high school math 
offerings. All students in grades ten and eleven have been involved 
in an S. A. T. preparation course. 

The interdisciplinary project for this year focuses on New 
Hampshire Lakes and Rivers. 

Buildings and Grounds; 

The resurfacing of Memorial Hall was completed last summer. 
Additional renovations included the construction of a computer lab 
in the middle school, and the installation of new lighting, and ex- 
terior doors in the academy building. 

Community Involvement: 

A new program which facilitates and encourages community 
and faculty input into the educational program and administration of 
the schools was begun. The Community Advisory Committee is 
composed of representative faculty members who meet with me 
weekly and parents who join the discussion on a monthly basis. The 
group includes parents not only from Orford, but also from com- 
munities sending tuition students. 

The Middle School Parent Teacher Support Group continues 
to be very active, meeting on a regular basis to plan fund raising 
events and special activities for the children. 

The Booster Club's financial support enabled us to build a 
new computer lab and to purchase the necessary equipment. 

Private donations have been used to purchase a computer and 
printer for the high school resource room, the Information Access 
System for the library, science equipment for grades three and five 
and to fund visiting artists in the schools. 

The faculty and I are very grateful for your continued support.

AUDITORS' CERTIFICATE 

This is to certify that we have examined the books, vouchers, bank 
statements and other financial records of the Treasurer of the School 
District of Orford of which the above is a true summary for the fiscal 
year ending June 30, 1991 and find them correct in all respects. 

CHARLES PETERS 
ROBB R. THOMSON 

The financial statements on the next pages have been prepared on 
the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with generally accepted 
accounting principals. This method of accounting recognizes accounts 
receivable and accounts payable as revenue and expense in the year in 
which earned or incurred rather than the year in which received or 
paid. The School District Treasurer's books of account are maintained 
on the cash basis in accordance with generally accepted public school 
practices.
